Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Bacteria
  • Genetics
  • Antibiotics

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Feces, Microbiology, Enterobacteriaceae, Animal science and Herd. The Feces study combines topics in areas such as Zoology and Niche. His work on Multiple drug resistance as part of general Microbiology research is often related to Serial dilution, thus linking different fields of science.

His Enterobacteriaceae research incorporates elements of Salmonella, Antibiotics, Antibacterial agent and Antimicrobial. His Animal science study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Colostrum, Antibody, Immunoglobulin M and Cattle Diseases. Herd is a primary field of his research addressed under Veterinary medicine.

His most cited work include:

  • The prevalence of Escherichia coli O157.H7 in dairy and beef cattle in Washington State. (376 citations)
  • A longitudinal study of Escherichia coli O157 in fourteen cattle herds (294 citations)
  • The control of VTEC in the animal reservoir (189 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary areas of study are Microbiology, Veterinary medicine, Dairy cattle, Herd and Animal science. His study looks at the relationship between Microbiology and fields such as Enterobacteriaceae, as well as how they intersect with chemical problems. His Veterinary medicine research includes elements of Antibiotics, Colonisation, Staphylococcus aureus, Prevalence and Drug resistance.

His Dairy cattle research incorporates themes from Mastitis, Internal medicine and Colostrum. The various areas that he examines in his Colostrum study include Immunoglobulin G and Ice calving, Lactation. His Animal science study incorporates themes from Longitudinal study and Cattle Diseases.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Microbiology (38.46%)
  • Veterinary medicine (38.46%)
  • Dairy cattle (30.77%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2009-2019)?

  • Microbiology (38.46%)
  • Genetics (9.62%)
  • Multiple Loci VNTR Analysis (7.69%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His main research concerns Microbiology, Genetics, Multiple Loci VNTR Analysis, Multilocus sequence typing and Salmonella enterica. Microbiology is frequently linked to Veterinary medicine in his study. T. E. Besser has researched Veterinary medicine in several fields, including Antimicrobial, Proportional hazards model and Agar.

His work in the fields of Genetics, such as Pathogen, overlaps with other areas such as Lineage, Divergent evolution and Locus. His research in Salmonella enterica tackles topics such as Virology which are related to areas like Ceftiofur, Cephalosporin Resistance and Multiple drug resistance. His research integrates issues of Dairy cattle, Molecular biology and Microorganism in his study of Mycoplasma.

Between 2009 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • The Prevalence of Multidrug Resistance Is Higher among Bovine than Human Salmonella enterica Serotype Newport, Typhimurium, and 4,5,12:i:− Isolates in the United States but Differs by Serotype and Geographic Region (42 citations)
  • Multilocus genotype analysis of Escherichia coli O157 isolates from Australia and the United States provides evidence of geographic divergence. (36 citations)
  • Agar Disk Diffusion and Automated Microbroth Dilution Produce Similar Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing Results for Salmonella Serotypes Newport, Typhimurium, and 4,5,12:i-, But Differ in Economic Cost (25 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Bacteria
  • Genetics
  • Internal medicine

T. E. Besser focuses on Multiple Loci VNTR Analysis, Multilocus sequence typing, Microbiology, Salmonella and Serotype. Shiga toxin, Locus, Pathogen, Divergent evolution and Genetics are fields of study that intersect with his Multiple Loci VNTR Analysis research. Multilocus sequence typing is connected with Multiple drug resistance, Antibiotic resistance, Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis, Salmonella enterica and Virology in his research.

His Microbiology research integrates issues from Veterinary medicine, Proportional hazards model and Agar. His research is interdisciplinary, bridging the disciplines of Drug resistance and Salmonella.
